High Probability Bullish Signals Generated on Two Steel Companies

High Probability Bullish Signals Generated on Two Steel Companies

Base metals have been rallying sharply over the last three months and a number of stocks in the industry have seen huge gains. Steel prices have been rising and it has taken steel stocks higher with it. The stocks have seen small pullbacks in the last month and that may be creating a buying opportunity.

On December 29, Tickeron’s A.I.dvisor generated bullish signals on two steel companies and the confidence levels of those two signals were extremely high. The AI trend prediction tool generated a bullish signal on Nucor Corp. (NUE) and on US Steel (X). The confidence level for the Nucor signal was 90% and the confidence level on the signal for US Steel was 88%. These signals are for the next month.

Looking at the daily charts for the two stocks we see very different paths higher. For Nucor, the rally has been pretty consistent since the low in March, and it has been even more consistent in the last five months with a trend channel forming. The stock has just bounced off of the lower rail of the channel and support at its 50-day moving average.

We also see that the daily stochastic indicators are in oversold territory and are in the process of making a bullish crossover.

US Steel’s chart isn’t quite as consistent. We see that the stock rallied from March through mid-June before falling. From late June through mid-September the stock was range bound. The stock really took off though and from late September through early December it gained over 190%. The stock peaked at $20 on December 9 and then pulled back for a few weeks.

We see that the pullback in US Steel caused its daily stochastic indicators to drop sharply and they went from overbought to oversold. The indicators, like we saw with Nucor, are in the process of making a bullish crossover.

I have to be honest, these signals are based almost exclusively on technical factors because neither of the companies have very good fundamental ratings. On the Tickeron Fundamental Analysis Screener, Nucor has two positive indicators and two negative indicators with three neutral readings. US Steel only has one positive indicator and one neutral indicator, the other five are negative readings.

The Tickeron scorecard gives both stocks a “sell” rating, but the scorecard ratings are looking out beyond the next month and they rely on fundamental factors more heavily. The one fundamental indicator where both companies receive a positive reading is the Valuation Rating. Nucor scores an 8 and US Steel scores a 27.

The comparison feature from Tickeron shows how the companies compare to one another and how they stack up against other stacks based on the scores from both the fundamental indicators and the technical indicators.

4 Tricks Hedge Funds Use to Get Ahead

4 Tricks Hedge Funds Use to Get Ahead

If the stock market were Major League Baseball, hedge funds and institutional investors would be the pros on championship teams while everyday self-directed investors (SDIs) are the benchwarmers in the minors.It’s how they get ahead, and it’s why 90% of SDIs lose money trying to play (invest and trade) in the major leagues. The 4 tricks we discuss below are rooted in one common theme: they all use Artificial Intelligence and algorithms to generate data and ideas.

US unemployment rate jumps to 14.7%, the highest in series history

US unemployment rate jumps to 14.7%, the highest in series history

The U.S. economy’s employment fell by -20.5 million in April. The coronavirus crisis led to unemployment rate soaring to 14.7% in the U.S, the highest rate in the Bureau of Labor Statistics-tracked series history that goes back to 1948. However, the figures were better compared to several economists'/analysts' forecasts of 22 million job losses and 16% unemployment rate.  Another unemployment measure that includes those who have stopped looking for work as well as those holding part-time jobs for economic reasons also touched an all-time high of 22.8%.
